I am trying to configure my internet connection in Red Hat Linux version 9.0 and kernel 2.4.20-8. I have partitioned my hard drive and one partition has Windows XP in it whereas the other has RH Linux 9.0. I have pppoe broadband internet connection with dhcp settings in Windows XP and it's working fine. My Windows XP Device Manager indicates that the network card is RTL8139 PCI Ethernet.
However /etc/sysconfig/hwconf in Linux is not detecting the card. I find unknown vendor | unknown device mentioned in the file. I guess RH 9.0 is supposed to automatically detect the internet connection settings.
Can someone indicate to me the reason why the card is not detected?
It's a desktop machine. Anyway isn't Red Hat Linux 9 supposed to detect network card automatically? I tried to load 8139too.c driver and yet when I did a modprobe it indicated to me that device interface is not detected.
As suggested by you, I have installed Fedora Core 5 on my system. However it's not recognising my serial 3 button Logitec mouse. At the same time, when I try connecting to internet, it's not connecting. Is there any configuration that I must do after installation or the OS should detect these automatically.
